Ridiculous painting going on in the hotel during peak season. Very disturbing especially with young children and the smell of paint. Sheer madness. It's not fair in guests, painting should be done during off peak season.

I recently stayed at Viking hotel with a visitor from India and we had an excellent stay on all counts.

If, like me, you're a petrolhead, then this is the hotel for you as it's based in the centre of Waterford's car showrooms. Look in any direction and you'll see showrooms for Audi, Ford, Dacia, Renault, Honda, Volvo etc. The hotel is quite spacious and the rooms are large and clean. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the... More
